Throwback Album of the Day – Train of Thought – Talib Kweli x Hi-Tek (Reflection Eternal)

When it comes to the pro-black rappers, aside from Mos Def, Talib Kweli (which is evidently the other half of the Blackstar group) is one of those prophetic rappers that is often looked past because of the subject material, as it deals with positivity and brings a message with him. A lot of people don’t want to hear that because they feel as if they can’t relate to it, but they’re messages that people SHOULD be listening to because of his uplifting and motivating subjects. At the same time, Talib brings the raw voice from New York with him and he throws it on soul-sampled beats, provided by one of the great hip hop producers in Hi-Tek. This is a great album, and it was only a year ago that I first heard it. Glad that I didn’t continue into my deep slumber for too long. Enjoy this, because it’s quality music.
